Netball Excitement at Professional Match - 10th March 2024

Our students enjoyed netball at its finest this weekend at a Saracens Mavericks home match at the University of Hertfordshire. 30 of our Year 7 to 11 students watched the match, with 11 of our Year 7 and 8s enjoying the privilege of being on ball patrol. They sat court side, ready to assist when the ball went off the court during the game or as guard of honour for the Mavericks when they entered the court.

The Mavericks, who are undoubtedly hugely inspirational to many young netballers, stayed behind at the end of the match for photos and autographs. 

We cannot underestimate how much students value sports trips; they are great fun and open the students’ eyes to the endless possibilities that can come from having a love of sport. This also gives pupils the opportunity to see the physical game and the many different opportunities within sport that they could pursue, from being a player to being a team physio, coach or manager. 

We can not wait for the next professional netball match we will be attending on 27th April.
